Hypnosis is Scary Stuff?

We understand why people are scared of hypnotism and mesmerism, or think it’s just a handy way of stopping smoking or slimming. However for the Arts, be that creating, performing or even experiencing, the human capacity to focus and enhance your Imagination is astounding and life enhancing.

Having trained to the highest degree in hypnotism, BBC’s Star of ‘Holby City’ and ‘I’m With Stupid’ Paul Henshall, soon to be featured in ITV’s ‘Off Their Rockers – Blue Badge Specials,”  and his life and business partner actor and singer Anna Scutt, “Clean Slate” TIE (also trained as a hypnotist), are the cast of this Comedy Theatre show written by CIU Award winning Hypnotist, Author and Mentalist Jonathan Chase.

Now in the role of Inga LeStrange, Rada trained, Eva Gray joins us.

Now we’re focused on taking the Art of Hypnosis on to a different and exciting stage where we will still be inviting people to join us and experience hypnosis and would love to have you join us on this exciting journey.
